Thanks for signing up!
Over the past few days, I have been trying to thoughtfully reflect on the heartbreaking school shooting in Florida last week. I have seen the debates on social media and most just make me really sad. Social media does a fantastic job of not just highlighting, but promoting, the extremes. To those on the right - I promise you that no one wants to take away your guns. To those of you on the left - I promise that gun advocates don’t believe that people with certain mental illnesses or criminal backgrounds should be armed. Please stop letting these false extremes tear us apart. Our children are dying in schools, in churches, in movie theaters. It’s mental illness AND easy access to guns. If we don’t work together and stop letting social media tell us how we feel and create fear, our children will keep dying. ... See more

Such a great cause for our community! I’ve been a Kiwanis member for 14 years and our club was happy to help with food packing this week!

Running for office has really forced me to step out of my comfort zone and do things I never thought I could do - like speak to large audiences of people! It gets easier every time, and it helps when you believe in what you're doing. I will put people before party and help make southern MN a better place to live. #klassenformn #yourvoiceforruralmn #vote2018 #mnleg ... See more

Scored a new sign for our yard at Precinct Caucuses tonight! #klassenformn
I am a pro-public education candidate! Our schools are the backbone of our communities, and we need to do better as a state to support our schools and teachers.
Support public schools and stand up for your students by attending your local precinct caucus! Both of Minnesota's major political parties -- Democrat-Farmer-Labor and Republican -- will hold precinct caucuses beginning at 7 p.m. Feb. 6.
